Presenting the Night Of Fright 5 at Sunway Lagoon [NOF5]

Who's ready for the Night Of Fright 5 at Sunway Lagoon?
To welcome the month of October, its time to be prepared for the Night Of Fright 5 at Sunway Lagoon. From the 7th till the 31st at 7.30pm, Sunway Lagoon will be opening the gates to horror for you to face your fears by giving you the chance to meet ghosts, ghouls and sinister creatures. Trust me, to warm you about the Night Of Fright 5, this would not be suitable for those with weak hearts as the theme park unveils the most outrageous, eerie, hair-raising haunted houses in the nation. You have been warn, so think twice before you enter. (I aint kidding)

Island of the Dolls
A little sneak peak of the outdoor maze
If you are here to plan your horrific weekend ahead, I would advise you to start your night by visiting THE ISLAND OF THE DOLLS, a replica of an accidental tourist attraction in Mexico which became famous due to a tragic disaster. I took the time to google it, so you can read more on the tragic disaster here (clickable). The maze is located in the only place in the park that only opens in the month of October due to several reasons, and I was told that area has a guardian that gave me goose bumps. I would have to share with you that this was the longest haunted maze that I had to go through and it took more than 7 minutes to complete the maze which is a long enough period to be in fright. I was scared!

Ouija, where evil comes alive!
To those who enter might not be able to make their way back
Right next to it would be the OUIJA, for you to experience a scary séance in the mysteries and long abandoned attic of Mr. E.J. Bond Esquire's home. As much I thought that this wouldn't be that scary, it will definitely bring chills to your bones. Imagine walking up to an attic, and you see an alley that leads you to a hidden dining room that had people who seemed possessed sitting around with candles on the table. It was one of the most creepiest experiences of my life! The fact that I had to still pass through, just to get to the other door, it was making my heart race in fear. The horror is real!

Day of the Dead in 3D anyone?
For a less eerie haunted maze, you could maybe consider taking a break by visiting the DAY OF THE DEAD IN 3D where you will be exposed to the phenomenon of life of the dead. You will be given 3D glasses to wear and trust me when I say that the haunted maze is filled with an environment that glows in the dark which may occasionally confuse you to find your way out. Be sure to stay alert as the low spirit might be spotted by the dead souls and they would always want some company in the realm of the dead.

Dystopia, a Hospital Hall inspired by Tokyo.
INSANE TESTING OF FEAR would be a visit to DYSTOPIA. I swear this has to be one of the scariest that I've been to. In an ambiance of an abandoned hospital, overrun with squalor, human misery, oppression, disease and overcrowding where the ghost of the past lingers in their halls. Since I went with Haziq, even Haziq was in fear gais! The maze exposes you to a horrifying experience of patient treatments that are frightful to hear and imagine walking through hospital beds with dead bodies. I hope you're convinced cause I don't even want to remember most of it.

Head to the Theatre for some Pontianak Vs Pocong, a love story of the dead
Apparently the Pocong cheated on the Pontianak, and to find out, you may have to pay a visit
The last place I visited before I ended the night would be the PONTIANAK vs POCONG which is a 10 minute theatre where you will watch a bloody affair of a lover returning as a Pontianak and unfaithful husband as a Pocong. To seek what is right fully theirs, the movie ended with an unexpecting surprise that you have to 'experience' it yourself in order to find out.

Might as well visit Horrorwood Studios while you're there
And try to keep yourself away from getting killed by killer clowns
The places that I covered would mostly be the new haunted attractions. With tons of options to choose from to spook your night, you can always call up the GHOSTBUSTERS to save the day, or if you're fearless, enter the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE with simply no escape once you step foot into the land of the undead who will show you the worst of fears. Re-live your childhood nightmares with iconic horror movie characters at the HORRORWOOD BOULEVARD which adopts the famous Hollywood façade with large Oscar Statues, red carpet, velvet rope barriers, and lights.

I only dared to snap a shot with this friendlier ghost, and I think thats good enough as a souvenir
Anyone ready for the judgement lane?
Don't miss out on the scare zones where you would always have to keep a look out for those who wonder in the dark. Face the curse of the sea at ZOMBIE PIRATES with the undead guardians shunning you away from bay into a pool of their horrifying torment. Don’t call yourself brave until you have entered the FOREST OF FEAR. And if you have ever wondered what goes behind the bars of Pudu Jail? Experience it first-hand as you walk-through the JUDGEMENT LANE where we give you the closest representation of how the prisoners are hung alive!

And we survived the night and left at 11.30pm
NOF 5 comes to life at 7.30pm – 11.30pm every Friday – Sunday from 7th to 29th October including 31st October 2017. Are you excited for the trill of horror? Wait no longer and plan your week ahead to not miss out on the night to greet your worst nightmares. Tickets are priced at RM64. Psst, if you're looking for some sneak peaks, you can always check out the #sunwaylagoonMY and #sunwaylagoonNOF5 hashtags on Facebook and Instagram. Get ready to face your fears, and don't tell me I didn't warn you about the night. For more information, call 603 5639 0000, visit www.sunwaylagoon.com or connect to www.facebook.com/SunwayLagoonMalaysia.


*This event is recommended for guests above 12 years old. Visitors dressed in their coolest and spookiest costumes will not be allowed to wear face masks or theatrical makeup to the event nights.

How awesome is that?

ABOUT MYCYBERSALE

You heard it, its the #MYCYBERSALE invading Malaysia
When: 9th till 13th October 2017

A little run-through about the MYCYBERSALE, this year happens to be the 4th year that Malaysia is running this 5 day long online sale organised by the MDEC under the Digital Malaysia Initiative acts as a catalyst to develop the e-commerce industry. And with that we are bringing shoppers to a digital world where instead of physically being in a shopping mall to shop, all you need is a few clicks and you're item would be delivered to you at your convenience. Aren't you convinced to shop digitally yet?

B.LIV by Cellnique

Here's my haul from the #MYCYBERSALE from b.liv
I've used B.LIV products before, and like the name of the brand, I believe that their skin products really gives you the faith to believe in achieving the skin you wish to have. The brand was established in 2009 with the intention to cater to a strong demand for an easy-to-use and adorable personal skin care regimen and now has been known as one of the leading brand in pores management for those who suffer with pore issues. (and sadly, one of them is me) Thats how I found out about the brand, and it has been one of the most reliable brands to me to solve blackheads. Im not kidding!

1| Drench Me

b.liv drench me | moisturising cleansing gel
The b.liv drench me is a moisturising cleansing gel that cleans your face form impurities, but at the same time provides the moisture that your skin needs. Suitable for all skin types of all ages, including dry skin to wash away dirt and with anti ageing properties to keep you hydrated all day. It claims to cleanse & hydrate skin, provide deep moisturising, encourage cell renewal process and contains antioxidants.

2| Refresh Me

b.liv refresh me | moisturising toner
Once you've cleansed your face, next would be to get your skin refreshed with the refresh me moisturising toner. It has an amazing formulation that moisturises and instantly elevates your complexion from 'I just woke up' to 'I'm started my day awesome'! Yes I said it. Keeping your skin at tip top condition, it refreshes and moisturises skin effortlessly. Did you know that other than toning and moisturising the skin, it also helps to restore damaged tissues and gives your skin a soothing calming effect. What more can you ask for from a toner?

3| Submerge Me

b.liv submerge me | moisturising booster
After toner, the submerge would be your essential moisturising booster to brighten your skin and ensure that signs of ageing are non-visible. In my daily skin regime, I would use this as a moisturiser booster to really give that natural glow on my face to last me throughout the day. I would actually recommend this if you're looking for long term deep moisturising that lightens and firm the skin. Psst, here's a little secret. I occasionally would apply thicker layers overnight to wake up to baby soft skin. Trust me, it works every single time! Did you know that this contains antioxidants as well to prevent early signs of ageing too.

4| Off With Those Heads

b.liv off with those heads | blackheads sebum gel
This. This has to be by far one of THE best sebum gel ever that any person suffering with pore issues should have. The Off With Those Heads is a sebum gel that helps extracts blackheads and whiteheads, minus the painful extractions that 'we' normally suffer at facial centres. You might be wondering how it works, and I'd be more than happy to explain it to you. The gel basically softens the clog that is blocking your pores, allowing easy extraction and removal of clogged pores. At the same time the gel keeps oil secretion under control while you enjoy your clean pores throughout the day without the painful aggravation. Its no wonder that they've won awards as the best blackhead remover and one of the best oil control and acne pore care in the skincare industry. Cant deny that!

5| O2 Bubbly Bright

b.liv O2 bubble bright | oxygenating mask
The O2 Bubble Bright is by far one of the coolest mask that gives your skin a new life. It combines both oxygen bubbles and rice powder to brighten skin complexion almost instantly. In 3 words, I would describe the mask as a fizz, foam and exfoliator kind of mask, which makes it unlike any mask you've owned I can guarantee. This happens to be my first time experiencing the b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright and I really enjoyed my first time experience as the mask fizzes into soft foam! Instantly after my first usage, I could see my skin looking firmer and brighter, almost similar to the skin I would get when I walk out from a facial treatment at a beauty centre. Love it!

GET b.liv from the MYCYBERSALE!


Don't miss out on these crazy deals!
You heard it, you read about it and now all you need to do is to be prepared for the MYCYBERSALE to invade the internet. Be sure to mark your calendars that the MYCYBERSALE will be running from the 9th till 13th of October 2017, and trust me, you wouldn't want to miss out on the great savings during the sale! Get amazing skin with b.liv by Cellnique by heading over to their official website pronto. Hehe.

NEUBODI's Bra Drive | Donate your old bra's at the Bra Bank

Neubodi's Bra Drive
Do you have old bra's that you don't use anymore? Instead of throwing it away, why not donate it to the Bra Bank. Neubodi, a Malaysian lingerie specialist brand has launched its month long Donate, Support, and Recycle Bra Drive campaign which will run until the 5th November in conduction with the International Breast Cancer Awareness month. So now would be the best time to dig out your old bra's for a good cause by donating them to the Bra Bank.

What is this Bra Drive all about?
This campaign means a lot to me as I had an aunt who recently passed away due to liver cancer which started with breast cancer, and I believe that by supporting this campaign, you could possibly be saving lives without you even knowing it. Neubodi had a bra drive campaign organised at the highstreet concert in 1 Utama last weekend, and I decided to be involved by checking out on what the campaign was all about. I've learned so much during the event and decided to share it out by writing a blog post on it, so please read on if you're interested on how you can be involved in making the world a better place.

Meet the guys who sort out your old unused clothes a.k.a Life Line Clothing Malaysia Sdn Bhd.
If you're wondering what your old bra's can do to help, I had the exact same question in mind! Im sure that not all our bra's would go to waste as some are still usable and some could possibly be already well used and not usable anymore, am I right? By donating old bra's, I was told that you are helping communities in Malaysia, Cambodia, Nepal, India and Africa including those in poverty for whom bras are sought-after to be used. And to the non-usable bra's it would be kept away by Life Line Clothing. I didn't know such technology existed where your old bras can be converted into reusable solid fuel to be used to power industrial boilers and generators. What a way to recycle old bra, instead of dumping it into landfills!


Getting myself a breast examination. YAY!
Thank you BCWA!
The partnership between Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA) and Neubodi aims to increase public awareness that breast cancer is 'gender blind' and promote the importance of self-examination for early detection which could possibly save lives. I was lucky enough to be able to catch their BCWA mobile clinic to a clinical breast examination, and thank god that my breast are free from cancer. What a relief. But that doesn't mean that I don't need to self-examine myself, which I was advised to check at least once a month. Did you know that BCWA takes serious action to help newly diagnosed cancer patients by helping them learn how to cope with the disease?

The customised silicone models
According to the National Cancer Institute Malaysia, about 5,000 Malaysian women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year and less than 72% of men recover from the disease as doctor visit is made when symptoms are more severe. During the event, BCWA also provided customised silicone models to educate those present on how to self-examine. Not to also forget that present were Tropicana Medical Centre's oncology specialist and health professionals to facilitate the public on understanding breast cancer.

Drop-Off Unwanted or Used bras

I've dropped my unwanted bra's in the Bra Bank and Im glad that my unused items won't be going to entire waste.
Now what can you do to contribute? Don't worry if you missed out on the Bra Drive last weekend, as the Bra Drive will still be on-going at any Neubodi stores nationwide and they will sort out the donated bras to be donate gently-used items to victims of sex trafficking, enabling their rehabilitation into society as they earn a livelihood selling second-hand bras OR will be passed to Life Line Clothing to recycle your old bra's to be used as reusable solid fuel instead of letting it go to waste to landfills.

And there you have it, you can donate your bra's until 5th November 2017 at any Neubodi stores.
Neubodi bra's are indeed super comfy too! Managed to grab one and I might just to a tiny review on it.
For more details on the Neubodi's "DONATE.SUPPORT.RECYCLE" Bra Drive 2017, you can keep yourself updated by heading over to their Official Facebook Page or Website which I would like it below for your convenience. So there you have it. Don't forget to get yourself examined and be sure to know your breast, because technically, only you can detect what isn't right with your body if you know your body well enough. Support the cause and share it out to everyones you know as the campaign ends on the 5th of November 2017. It would really mean a lot to me, and it would also be a good thought in mind the end the year knowing that you've done something good in 2017. *wink

[REVIEW+GIVEAWAY] Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel

Reviewing the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel
Im back again for yet another review on Bausch+Lomb contact lenses, and today i'll be sharing with you a little review of the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel. If you have been keeping up with my blog post, i've written about my first time experience of wearing contact lenses! And trust me when you get used to using contact lenses, it occasionally becomes like a beauty enhancer on days you don't exactly feel like wearing exessive make up. You can always read up on my first experience with contact lenses if you havent by clicking here.

Got myself in the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel in Amber Brown and Amethyst Violet
Whats in the box?
In my previous write up on contact lenses, i was talking about disposable contact lenses, so this time around, i decided to try out the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel soft contact lenses in Amber Brown for this blogpost. It comes in a shocking pink box which contains 2 individual soft contact lenses which i was told are reusable and advisable to be used for a maximum of 1 month with a condition that the contact lenses are well-taken care off each time it has been used.

Tried and Tested

It has a lace-like pattern
I've tried and tested the Bausch + Lomb Lacelle Jewel soft contact lenses and i have to admit that it was a little tricky to apply as the contact lenses are slightly bigger than my chinese blood eyes, since im wearing this for the first time,  but all is good once you get used to it. I've tested and worn this to work since 8am to 10pm to find out that it doesnt dry my eyes out.  But it got a little dry at about 10.30pm, thus i wouldnt advise you to wear this over 12 hours in a day. I was also getting compliments on my eyes looking bigger than usual by my colleagues. Such a conversation started!

With and Without

Whats the difference?
Since i got a little curious on what i look like with and without the contact lenses. I mean like, how can you not wonder especially when your contact lenses are in brown and when you have brown eyes. What possible can be any different? And i guess from the image above, it pretty much tells that contact lenses does make you eyes look ever more attractive by adding a slight flare each time you wink. Hehe. And i guess from the looks of it, my eyes do look a little bigger and at the same time, leaving my eyes looking natural despite wearing contact lenses.

Conclusion

What are my thoughts on the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel?
As a conclusion, i would have to say that i have to admire the comfort of the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel range which i've experienced throughout the day. It has a unique lace pattern which blends really well with your pupil to leave a very natural finish to your eyes. It comes in other colours as well, but i like to stick it to natural tones so that it wouldnt attract too much attention. It comes in different powers to suit different levels of eyesight which i think is great for those who find it uncomfortable to wear glasses. After you're done using your contact lens, just a friendly reminder to always wash it with Renu Fresh and store it in a proper contained to prolong its usage.

GIVEAWAY

Win yourself a pair of Baush+Lomb Lacelle Jewel Soft Contact Lenses
Congratulations for going this far in my blog post, and as promised from my post tittle, there will be a giveaway for you guys to experience the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel. Since i understand that everybody is a little too busy to follow instruction, i've decided to keep the t&c's short. All you need to do is to share out my facebook page post and tell me why you would want to win the Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel in your post to be in the running to win a pair of Bausch+Lomb Lacelle Jewel contact lens. I will be selecting a total of 3 winners, which also means that you'll stand a higher chance of winning, where i will contact you via PM facebook. So please keep a look out as the giveaway ends on the 30th of October 2017!

Gambateh if you're joining the giveaway!

Benefits of Muay Thai for Females | First Time Muay Thai Experience


Muay Thai Benefits | Muay Thai First Time Experience
Believe it or not, I actually signed up for Muay Thai classes gais! I've always wanted to try out Muay Thai and the closest to martial arts I did was back in primary school as a yellow belt taekwondo. Being in my mid-twenties now, I would have to say that Muay Thai is a really great workout to those who would want to level up on your life skills (cause why not). I did a little research on Muay Thai and it is considered as a cultural martial art of Thailand. The origin of Muay Thai goes back to hundreds of years ago and essentially developed to be a form of close combat that uses the body to mimic the weapons of war.

The Elitez MMA PJ Space
During my first class, I learned that the standard position of standing has all its meaning to it. From my understanding, my hands became the sword and dagger, my shins and forearms were hardened in training to act as an armor and the elbow to act as a heavy hammer weapon. And in general, the rest of the body would be operated as one unit. I was told that the knees and elbows are constantly searching for an attack strategy, and I only managed to train my elbow by doing the Hook and Uppercut move and it's no joke when you start punching on something solid. (Thus it would be best to bring some cloth with you to wrap your hands to reduce the pressure of the punch) #Lessonslearned

Photo Credits: Andy Teh's FB
I did my Muay Thai beginners class at Elitez MMA PJ GFteam where it was all started by Andy Teh, a winning professional martial arts fighter in Malaysia, and now he could be your sifu to teach you all the things that you need to know about Martial Arts. This happens to be his 3rd branch follows after his first 2 martial arts branches in Setia Alam and Klang. Being a Petaling Jaya girl, I'm happy that he opened another branch making it super near by for me to go for classes. hehe.

video

Things I've learned during my first day would be the Jab, the Cross, the Hook, the Uppercut,  the Knee attacks. I wouldn't say that you would struggle to learn these new steps if it's your first time, but I'd have to say that the challenging part of it is to keep up with speed and precision. Yeah, we all know getting the moves are easy (especially when you go for other classes as well), but the truth is to constantly practice the right technique can be a little tricky. We practice each move individually for about 10 sets each time, then later on our sifu combined the moves to make it as one move. Here, I also learned that listening is very important, and somehow it also encourages me to stay focused willingly. I had an 'im in the game' moment, and it actually felt pretty cool. Check out my moves by watching the video above which I think ain't that bad for a first-timer. hehe

THE BENEFITS


Call us the Muay Thai Babes
By learning Muay Thai, I would have to say that this is a form of value added into our lives, especially if you're a female. I decided to list down a few benefits of why you should learn Muay Thai:
  • Burns calories while giving you a leaner body. 
  • Its better than running an hour on a treadmill or lifting weights. Burns time too.
  • Simple to learn, and different techniques can be applied once you learn the basic moves.
  • Gives you Self-defense skills, and as a woman, it's better safe than sorry guys!
  • Strengthening. It strengthens the mind, soul, stamina, energy and overall fitness.
  • Challenging. It challenges you mentally and physically to be better than what you are today. 
  • Endorphins Rush, yep Muay Thai gives you that as well which aids in stress management, helps you relax and improves the quality of your sleep. 

CONCLUSION


Other than Muay Thai being a great skill, it's also a great workout! 
Check out their timetable at the Elitez MMA PJ
As a verdict, I would have to say that by learning Muay Thai, it's like a combination of fitness and self-defense skills. Rather than paying for a trainer at a gym, I would have to say Muay Thai is way more worth it as you're killing two birds with one stone. Moreover, I would have to say that Muay Thai is highly recommended for females as it teaches you the art of self-defense since the world is getting unsafe if you're on the streets alone. It also adds a little boost as a conversation starter when telling someone that you learn Muay Thai by being the devil in heels. hehe. If you're looking at other martial art classes, Elitez MMA PJ GFteam has got it all covered where you can learn different martial arts as well. Below would be their official facebook site to see more information. xx

On-going promotion to check out!
